Fissure prevention

I am coming across many cases of piles/fissures these days. Wanted to know what are the preventive measures for it. I have been staying away from home for last 14 yrs now n have to eat out a lot of time ( spicy food n all which i don prefer but don have an option). What care can I take in my diet to prevent this?

I visited DR.Poornachandra K.S last month. i was suffering from h.pyloria infection from the last 3.5 months but all the doctors in Kolkata said it was GERD. i was under medication for GERD but since I visited DR.Poornachandra K.S last month. i was suffering from h.pyloria infection from the last 3.5 months but all the doctors in Kolkata said it was GERD. i was under medication for GERD but since i was not recovering i decided to consult Dr. Poornacandra and after visiting him i got to know that i was not suffering from GERD. he patiently read all my previous records n test reports a . after listening to all that i had to say he suggested that i should undergo a diagnostic endoscopy which was required in my case , and it went quite well. i was initially scared, but later on managed it. the endoscopy report showed that i was suffering from h pyloria infection. the Dr. gave me medicines for a month n now am perfectly fine. before i couldnt eat anything, not even home cooked meal but just after a week of taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Poornachandra i recovered. i had an amazing experience with him. he is highly recommended by me to any one who seeks a gastroentrologist . am overtly satisfied with his teatment procedure. no unnecessary tests or medicines, only those that are required and necesssary for diagnosis. i give Dr. Poornachandra a big thumbs up!!!!! more..

Pathetic experience. Lost my 500 INR paid for consultation fee. I told doctor that I will be leaving Bangalore on next day. So he told me to do the test and email him reports and he will revert back. I Pathetic experience. Lost my 500 INR paid for consultation fee. I told doctor that I will be leaving Bangalore on next day. So he told me to do the test and email him reports and he will revert back. It's been almost two months passed neither doctor nor the clinic bothered to revert back. After sending my report I called almost 4 days regularly.
Seriously bad experience.

He had enquired how my food habits were for few days. Hearing to my issue he gave a clue of food-poisoning.

However, I have a suggestion for Dr Poornachandra KS. I was asked where the pain is. I, like any patient, said 'Stomach'. In response, the doctor said that is a very general answer. He was expecting more precise, I guess, like upper stomach or lower stomach something like that. Dr Poornachandra, you can help the patient a little better to get the answer you need. Franky speaking I do not understand the difference between upper and lower stomach pain. I believe, this was just one case and can improve on this.

Having said all that, Dr Poornachandra KS is a really good doctor and indeed solved my food-poisoning in a weeks time. His fixed using some medications and major change in diet. I was getting very tired during my food-poisoning episode. Post the medication and diet I was perfect the next day onwards. He is very professional and happy to get his appointment.
